  1. =chuckles= Reminds me of when I was a kid. I’d look outside when it was raining & see the dog sitting out in the rain ’cause the cat had appropriated his doghouse again.

  2. I have an almost identical picture of my cat in the dog’s crate and the dog sleeping on the hardwood floor just outside of it. The cat doesn’t seem to understand that the dog is 5 times his size!

  3. That dog looks profoundly forlorn. Much like my friend’s German shepherd, who whenever I go over there puts his chin in my lap and looks up at me like he’s trying to say, “They never pet me, you know. Ever.”

  4. He’s Temp-Cat Zeus
    he done paid his dues,
      now he lays his haid
      on a doggie bed…
    or anywhere else he choose.

  5. So what Zeus is implying is that in order for me to reclaim MY bed from MY cat, I need to get a big dog and then a big dog bed. Got it!

  6. Keri@14,

    Remember, there are two more cats in the household. They are probably occupying the other beds.

  7. We’ve had our 85-pound sweet mutt of a dog since she was very young and much smaller than our oldest cats. They are still the Bosses Of Her. (Also, she tends to bathe herself cat-style, which is kind of amusing.)

  8. #10: So what if the dog is five times the cat’s size? Cats are always in charge! Surely you know that?

    Years ago, my family’s female Siamese was stretched out sideways on one of our kitchen chairs, which had vertical wooden slats along the back. Our male Dalmatian came up and started sniffing at her paws, which were poking out between the slats. She glared at him, and before he knew what was happening, she’d whacked him on both sides of his face, claws fully extended.

    Have I mentioned cats are always in charge?

    :-)

  9. #11: I don’t know if it’s specific to German shepherds or what, but my inlaws’ female shepherd does the same thing. That dog is spoiled beyond belief, but you’d never know it from the way she acts when we come to visit. “They never pet me, you know. Ever.” sums it up rather nicely.

    :-)
